    Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was “surprised” by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s sworn testimony in a Senate hearing in which she claimed that she did not know whether the U.S. mission in Libya was procuring or transferring weapons to Turkey and other Arab countries. It was Paul who asked Clinton the question during the hearings. His inquiry focused on alleged weapons shipments out of Benghazi to arm the rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Speaking on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio, Paul was reacting to Clinton’s testimony in light of a New York Times...

    Immediately after the Democratic National Convention in Colorado, the Boston Globe published a letter from David Alinsky. He boasted about how Barack Obama had made effective use of his training in the methods of David's late father, the famous Chicago radical, Saul Alinsky. David Alinsky gloated: "I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday."

    NEW YORK -- As Chinese authorities have clamped down on unrest in Tibet and jailed dissidents in advance of the 2008 Olympics, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has taken a strong public stance, calling for restraint in Tibet and urging President Bush to boycott the Olympics opening ceremonies in Beijing. But her recent stern comments on China's internal crackdown collide with former President Bill Clinton's fundraising relationship with a Chinese Internet company accused of collaborating with the mainland government's censorship of the Web. Last month, the firm, Alibaba Inc., carried a government-issued "most wanted" posting on its Yahoo China homepage, urging...

    From Jack Cafferty to even Keith Olbermann, the mainstream media has begrudgingly had to acknowledge that Hillary Clinton’s recent “scripted” recollection of dodging sniper fire in Bosnia was not just a misstatement, but a bold faced lie. A lie told to bolster her image as an experienced, courage-under-fire, presidential candidate ready to become Commander-in-Chief. The media, as usual, has been slow to jump onboard because they depend on candidates to come on and give interviews. When they think they’re being unduly picked on, they avoid that network. So media outlets are careful to fully check stories before they run them....

    The only suspense in Barack Obama's Democratic Party primary win in Mississippi last week was how much he'd win by. Anything less than double digits could be interpreted as something of a moral victory for his rival for the presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton. "Moral victories" are useless in politics, but they are a straw to grasp at if you are the Clinton campaign struggling towards the next primary, in Pennsylvania, which is six weeks away. So with Obama winning Ole Miss 61 per cent to 37 per cent - a 24-point spread - well, it could be called a demoralizing...

But for now, at least, not proud enough to let voters know what they are. This exercise in secrecy is part of a Clinton pattern that grows more worrisome all the time.

    March 16, 2008 For Democrats, Increased Fears of a Long Fight By ADAM NAGOURNEY and JEFF ZELENY WASHINGTON — Lacking a clear route to the selection of a Democratic presidential nominee, the party’s uncommitted superdelegates say they are growing increasingly concerned about the risks of a prolonged fight between Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, and perplexed about how to resolve the conflict. Interviews with dozens of undecided superdelegates — the elected officials and party leaders who could hold the balance of power for the nomination — found them uncertain about who, if anyone, would step in to fill...

    The Hillary Chronicles: Worse Than You Thought Two new biographies shed new light on Senator Clinton By Byron York Hillary Clinton wasn’t looking forward to the publication of two new biographies, Her Way: The Hopes and Ambitions of Hillary Rodham Clinton, by former and present New York Timesmen Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta Jr., and A Woman in Charge, by Carl Bernstein, the lesser half of the Watergate team of Woodward and Bernstein. Senator Clinton is, of course, famously secretive — she probably wouldn’t be happy with any biography unless it were written by, say, Sidney Blumenthal — and...

    This is how ugly things have gotten between supporters of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama -- Clinton supporters are staging what they call a "strike" at the influential liberal website DailyKos. It's not really a "strike" -- blogging for these diarists is not a job, and stopping their blogging won't cause them financial hardship. But, that said, these diarists' boycott of DailyKos is indicative of the turmoil in which the Democratic party finds itself. Read more on their "strike" HERE.

    Cross Action News ^ | 3-15-08 | Carl Sterling Parnell, Ed.D.
    “We the People” have allowed the government to become a bloated over-fed parody of its original self. The original structure is still there, just hidden under layers upon layers of law. Our government has become too big for its britches. Our congressmen pass legislation on almost a nit picky level. Do we need the seatbelt law? Shouldn’t a grown adult decide whether or not to wear a seatbelt? Do we need a law that says you can’t sell non-diet drinks in a school? I think it might be the parent’s job to educate their children about what to drink and...

    U.S.A If the Dems don't stop fighting, McCain will win By Patricia J. Williams Friday, 03.14.2008, 05:07pm It was delightful, those early days when Republicans were in fractious disarray and the Democratic field bloomed with interesting candidates like a pasture full of daffodils — any of them! All of them! Bluebirds sang. We were rolling in good will. Now, however, John McCain has unified the right with a lizardy, smothering oil of "my friend," "my friends" and "hey listen, pal." And Democrats are chewing each other's legs off. ...

    As you know, both Hillary and Obama have proposals out there that would eliminate union elections in the workplace. These proposals would institutionalize union intimidation and coercion in efforts to unionize workplaces. Now .. why do I have a problem with unions? Just read this email: Message: Boortz, I witnessed this event at my place of employment and was astonished at what happened. This is what Hillary and her gang want to do to us. I work in a large corporation that has both Union and non union employees. One of my coworkers was moving their desk, to one desk...

    Stan Lee hosted a fundraising event back in 2000, the "The Hollywood Gala Salute To William Jefferson Clinton And Hillary Rodham Clinton" arranged by Peter Paul, the man behind Stan Lee Media, the internet venture that eventually collapsed into bankruptcy and Paul was jailed after pleading guilty to stock manipulation. Hillary Clinton's campaign team recently resubmitted their report to the FEC, stating that Stan Lee contributed $225,000 in 2000 to her Senate campaign. However in a deposition back in 2005, (handily just uploaded to YouTube here and here), Lee states that he did not make such a financial contribution...
  • If Spitzer Quits, Clinton Would Lose One of Her Superdelegates

    If New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer resigns, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton will be down one superdelegate. The scandal-tainted governor and his lieutenant governor, David Paterson, who is a Democratic National Committee member, are among the roughly 800 superdelegates who will also cast ballots at the August nominating convention. Both support Sen. Clinton. The DNC confirmed yesterday that New York would lose Mr. Spitzer's superdelegate slot if he resigns.
